Billerica Tick Control Experts
Protect your loved ones with tick control
Living in New England, you’re likely aware that Lyme disease is everywhere here. It’s such a big problem that in 2015 it was officially declared an epidemic in Massachusetts. But there are many more tick-borne illnesses on the rise in our area, including Babesiosis (of which Middlsex County seems to be a hotspot) and the the rare, but fatal Powassan virus, which CBS Boston has increasingly been reporting on.
While not all ticks are infected with and carry scary diseases, do you really want to get bitten by one and take the chance? Even Billerica Wicked Local has been publishing things about how officials are urging people to be more vigilant about ticks, but their suggestions of “using tick and mosquito repellent, wearing long sleeves and long pants outdoors, and performing periodic checks for ticks on your body” are well-intentioned, but simply not realistic. The Town of Billerica, while also well-intentioned, doesn’t help their citizens much in the way of tick advice, either. Their ”Public Health Nurse” section of their website consists of links to elsewhere and PDF downloads.
When it comes down to it, when the weather is nice out, who wants to be bundled up in their own yard? That’s where we come in. Mosquito Squad of Central Massachusetts is your Billerica tick control expert..
Not only does Mosquito Squad help eliminate up to 90% of mosquitos with our specially formulated barrier treatment, the same formula conveniently eliminates up to 90% of adult ticks and fleas on contact, too. It’s pretty powerful stuff, but when it comes to Billerica tick control, we go one step further to protect you and your loved ones from ticks and tick-borne illnesses.
Billerica Tick Control Step One:
Following the same barrier treatment process we use for mosquito control, we distribute our special bug-eliminating formula to treat surfaces in your yard that include shrubbery, foliage (avoiding flowers), around and underneath decks and patios, and especially tall grass. Special attention is given to the tall grass areas on your property for Billerica tick control since this is typically where you can find them breeding, resting and waiting for their next blood meal. It’s our job to make sure it’s not you!
Since our formula is designed to be time released, your property will be protected for three weeks once the treatment is dispersed. This barrier treatment has the added benefit of preventing the eggs of ticks from hatching and thus puts a stop to the next generation of these pests. For continuous, worry-free tick and mosquito control in on your property, we offer seasonal plans so you won’t have to worry about rescheduling. You don’t even need to be home when we visit, and we’ll always leave a confirmation of service before we leave.
But we don’t stop there.
Step Two in Billerica Tick Control: Going Straight to the Source
Lyme Disease and other tick-born illnesses caused by bacteria transmitted most often by the deer tick, but other ticks carry disease, too. Not every tick is a carrier of bad pathogens, but it’s best to err on the safe side. Ticks become infected when they feed on small animals, usually mice, that are infected. By going straight to the source through the implementation of tick tubes, we are able to stop the cycle of disease where it would normally start. That way, we’re eliminating ticks before they come anywhere near people and pets.
What’s a tick tube? Well, it’s a small tube with biodegradable tubing that’s filled with cotton treated with a solution fatal to ticks. We strategically place these tubes around your property, and mice and other small animals find them and bring the cotton back to their burrows to make them nice and cozy. When a hungry tick bites and feeds off one of these small animals, it’s gone from this world and one fewer tick to worry about potentially causing anyone damage. These Billerica tick control tubes are a proactive measure that Mosquito Squad takes, and help reduce up to 90% of tick populations before they’re able to multiply.
Prefer an all-natural tick control alternative?
Not a problem. We also offer an all-natural barrier treatment. All of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA registered, but we understand there are some people who want to be as eco-friendly as possible. We specially developed an all-natural formula with essential oils and a few secret ingredients for those who prefer to go this route. While it’s more of a repellant than an eliminator, our all-natural formula is still highly effective —most customers notice a reduction in mosquitoes, ticks, and other yard pests by up to 80%using this method. Also time released, we highly recommend reapplication every two weeks instead of the three that our traditional barrier spray would need.
